2.5 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
Many thanks to bobinlondon for the bottle!! Pours a clear chestnut color with a lofty tan head. The smell is toasted malt, citrus, some spice, mild caramel. The taste is tangy fruit, citrus, toasted malt, a bit of off-flavor and some spice on the end. Light+ in body with very active carbonation. The carbonation and flavor make me wonder if the bottle was perhaps infected. It wasn’t totally bad but seemed a bit off.

330ml bottle. Clear, copper-ish, dark amber colour with average to huge, frothy, half-way lasting, minimally lacing, ochre-ish beige head. Fruity hoppy aroma, hints of cherries and red berries, some orange, sangria borrowings. Taste is slightly sweet caramel malty with a nuttily touch, fruity hoppy overtones with hints of sweet red fruit, a bitter touch of orange zest.

Almost bright, amber colour, aroma is some roast and malts, taste is very roasted and, again, coarsely bitter upfront which is how it should be and seems to be a common feature in Dave’s beers. Nicely done, Dave!

Pours red with an off white, foamy head. Aroma is quite woody, earthy. Taste is very earthy too, malty, bit of a bitter finish. Lovely.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle from Morrisons. Murky amber/ruby body with a thick beige head. Light lacing. Aroma of caramel, nutty malts, wood and red fruits. Flavour of stewed strawberry, parma violets, dried fruits and earth. Medium body with an oily texture. Soft fizz. Restrained and less hoppy than I’d hoped it would be. Decent beer though. I don’t think the deScription on the bottle reflects the beer contained within.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
330ml bottle, billed as an Oxymoronic IPA, poured into La Chouffe tulip. A: Ruby, mahogany, clear, small tanned head which was intent on making a swift exit, moderate amount of lacing. A: Earthy Fuggles hop. T: Decent Maris Otter malt profile, slight bitter sweetness at the finish. M: Medium body, moderate amount of carbonation, smooth. O: English IPA meets ESB, well balanced, a bit more of a cold weather beer, but a nice change from the seemingly endless stream of American IPAs.
